India tops the list of countries that are for cashless economy - 79% Indians in favour

Image Description

India's digital payments, especially routed through the official NPCI-backed UPI system, have been showing huge spike, especially in the Covid-19 world for obvious reasons. And the Narendra Modi-helmed government is also backing aggressively the drive for digital economy as rivals of NPCI are also now being developed. Little wonder then, India is the country most in favour of a cashless society as 79% of Indians believe going cashless would have a positive impact on their country. 

Furthermore, 47% of Indians have paid in cash less often since the Covid-19 outbreak. 

These numbers emerged in a survey done by MoneyTransfers.com, which as its name makes it clear is an international money transfer company.

Malaysia (65%), UAE (63%) and Indonesia (63%) are among the other countries where  over 60% of citizens would welcome their countries transitioning to just electronic payments, the survey said.

Vietnam (60%) and Singapore (56%) are among the other countries where over 55% of citizens are in favour of transitioning towards a cashless society, respectively in fourth and fifth position.  

Italy is the highest-ranking European country in joint sixth place (alongside Philippines), as 52% of  Italians think going entirely cash free would be a great decision for their country.  

Interestingly, the United States is joint 15th (alongside Sweden), as just 24% of Americans feel a cashless society would be a good thing for their country.  

At the other end in 17th position is France, where only 18% of French citizens would welcome their country being entirely dependent on electronic forms of payment.  

For the record, a total of 25,823 individuals were surveyed for the research, 1,010 from India. 

Residents of 21 different countries were surveyed for this research.

  • Google update looks to help you spot Workspace phishing scams

    Google is adding new updates to its online collaboration platform to detect and protect from security threats such as phishing attacks.

    The upgrade to Google Workspace should provide more information on who is tagging you in comments or questions in a file.

    This means that whenever you are mentioned in a comment on a Google Docs document, Sheets spreadsheet or Slides slideshow, it should be easier to spot that the notification is legitimate.

    Phishing protection

    Previously, only the name of the commenter was included in email alerts sent to a user after they had been mentioned in a comment. Google says that in order to provide more security and insight, it will now also include the commenter's email address, showing they are a legitimate user.

    "We hope that by providing this additional information, this will help you feel more confident that you’re receiving a legitimate notification rather than a spam or phishing attempt by a bad actor," the company noted in a blog post announcing the news.

    The feature is rolling out now, and is available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as legacy G Suite Basic and Business customers, and users with personal Google accounts.

    The move is the latest addition from Google Workspace to improve security for its users. The company added end-to-end encryption to the platform back in June 2021 in what was a slightly late move, but one that added a significant protection boost for its entire software collection.

    This launch also saw Google enabling businesses to set up their own in-house key service, enabling them to take charge of their encryption keys.

    The company is also looking to draw in more new users with the launch of Workspace Migrate, which offers an easier way for admins to assess and plan migration projects to its platform.

    This includes looking to move a large amount of enterprise data, such as that from Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft OneDrive, file shares, and Box migrations.
